Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater PS5 PlayStation

It seems time heals all wounds, even the grievous ones that linger after a high-profile public breakup. Noriaki Okamura, producer of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater from Konami, has signalled that not only would he be up for working with auteur creator Hideo Kojima again, it's his heart's most fervent desire.

Okamura made the comments in the recently released Metal Gear Production Hotline video (thanks, Gematsu). Making sure to separate his stance from Konami's, the producer was asked if there was any chance that the original staff members would return to work on, co-develop, or supervise any Metal Gear games, to which he replied:

"Wow, okay. I can see we're starting with a tough one, huh? It's not my place to answer on behalf of anyone outside the company or to guess how they might feel about it. But just speaking for myself, personally, I'd like nothing better than to work with Mr. Kojima and the rest of the team again. If that could happen, that would be the dream."

Okamura also confirmed that Kojima and the development staff of the original Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater will be properly credited for their work and appear in Delta's credits.

Do you still hope in your secret heart that Kojima and the Metal Gear franchise can one day be reconciled? Dare to dream in the comments section below.
